WILLIAM WHITTINGHAM.On the 2nd of January I was in New Compton Street,about 6 o’clock in the evening- I saw the prisoner and another following a truck,which went up Wardour Street one of them put his hand into it,but I did not see them take anything - they went on to Oxford Street and went to a cart but I did not see them take anything from that:they went on to Regents Street and went to a truck but I did not see them take anything from that-they went into Air-times:I then saw him go and take the cloak from the back of it-the other one followed him to a back street where he called"Jem’ Jem” and the prisoner came up with the cloak on his arm-they ran on towards Dean Street,where they tied the cloak up,and the other took it: I and Phillips ran on to get a head of them.I took hold of the other,who had this bundle- he threw it at me and got away I saw Phillips had hold of the prisoner,who seemed to be going to strike him:I knocked the prisoner down and secured him-I found three keys on him.
Prisoner Q Will you swear I was the person who took The cloak A Yes it was dark and I lost sight of him for about ten minutes.
JESSE PHILLIPS I was with Whittingham: I did not see the prisoner take the cloak, but I saw his companion I said ‘Let us keep to him and we shall find the other” he went into a dark street and whistled and called Jem and the prisoner came up with the cloak on his arm.
JOHN MILLS I am a medical man, I left my gig on the evening in question in the care of a boy: this cloak was in it when I returned it was gone.
Prisoners defence I had been to see a sister who was on a dying bed-when I came to the corner of Dean Street a young man passed me with a bundle -the witness took me the other was not pursued
